Afternoon Inqueery

AI: The Annoyingly Variable Nature of Perceived Time

This is the time of year – this, and November – where I feel like weeks are slipping past me so quickly I’ll never get half the things done that I want to.  Even though I’m not an undergrad dealing with exams (except for the one-ish class a year I take) anymore, it always seems to be these two time periods, no matter what else is going on.

What makes time “fly” for you?  When do you feel like it’s crawling?  Is there a particular time of year or week that always moves especially quickly or slowly?  What do you do to compensate, if anything?

The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 3pm ET.
